Once upon a time Ryan, Ian, and Brad created Glee, a show about (mostly) outcast students who were members of the New Directions glee club at William McKinley High School in Lima Ohio. The show as super popular, but they realized that they could not have the same actors playing the same characters forever. They had to graduate eventually, and part of the appeal of the existing cast was that they were relatively unknown actors, and they utilized traits of the actual actors in the characters that they played making them more real.
Season One was lightening in a bottle, and almost all of the cast proved to be loved by the fans, and came back for season 2 (poor Matt!). However, some of the actors hired to supplement the cast during season two didn’t go over as well as they had hoped, so they decided to hire people that were not regular actors at all and write characters around them. Ryan, along with Casting Director Robert Ulrich decided to open up casting to literally the entire world through an online audition process, and large open casting cals in several American cities; and The Glee Project was born.
Introducing: Quartie One Shots:
By Wilde Abrams
Author’s Notes: Welcome to my new project Quartie One Shots. As I explained in the introduction to my story Quartie Headcannon, I have always suspected that there was more to Quinn and Artie’s relationship/friendship than we got to see on the show itself. There were far too many background moments between them, and the genuine affection in their goodbye to eachother in the episode Goodbye was too strong for there not to be. If you read my other works you see that I often feature their friendship. Quartie Headcannon gives you a general overview, but I also want to delve into it a bit deeper.
Quartie One Shots will primarily take specific moments in Glee cannon, add “deleted scene” type things, and flesh them out. I may possibly create all original material as well. We shall see. These will not necessarily be presented in chronological order. Most stories will remain clearly in platonic friendship territory, but I can’t promise that it might not stray into something more if inspiration strikes.
Quartie used to be a fairly popular ship in fanfiction when Quinn was still on the show, and there are around 300 Quartie stories on fanfiction dot net. Kevin and Dianna are good friends in real life and wanted their characters paired in season 3, but RIB gave us more Quick, Shugartie, and Quoe instead.
Don’t worry, Wildebrams I’d still my OTP, but Quartie is interesting and fun to read and write about as well.
Presenting: The Wildebrams Saga
As many of you know, my multi-chapter Wildebrams stories The Ballad of Kitty and Artie, A New Beginning, and Wedding Song are one continuous story. To help clarify and promote this, I have decided to retitle these existing stories under the name The Wildebrams Saga.
Effective immediately, The Ballad of Kitty And Artie and Wedding Song are re-titled The Wildebrams Saga 1: The Ballad of Kitty and Artie and The Wildebrams Saga 4: Wedding Song.
I’m also announcing 3 additional parts of the saga, the first chapters of which will appear in the next few weeks.
ANNOUNCING: NEW BEGINNINGS and NEW NEW DIRECTIONS
(A rewrite and expansion of A New Beginning)
With the next few weeks I will begin publishing an almost complete rewrite of this story which was first published over a year ago, but was never finished.
First, let me give you some background explanation. Two and a half years ago when I started writing Glee fanfic, I was a very angry Glee fan. To me, the best part of glee, on top of all of the compelling characters, was the glee club itself. But, in the middle of season 5 the writers, in a knee-jerk reaction to the death of Cory Monteith, decided to take Glee in a completely different direction, ending the glee club in Lima storyline and writing anyone not in New York out completely, and in the process made it not feel like Glee anymore.
[ FANFIC ] An Unexpected Broadway Visitor (6×13)
By Wilde Abrams
== Richard Rogers Auditorium, New York – Late Spring 2020
Michael Chang entered the vast Broadway auditorium and found his way to his seat near the center and only a handful of rows beyond the orchestra pit. He hoped that the extra expense he’s incurred in getting such a good seat would make it easier for him to spot the person he’d been looking for, the person he’s come all the way to New York to see, in the hopes that she would be able to help him win back the heart of the love of his life.
In Commemoration of the One Year Anniversary of the Airing of Glee’s final episode, I present to you my loyal readers a sneak peek at the unfinished draft of my version of Dreams Come True … Enjoy!
######## Kitty’s Confession #######
Note: This takes place immediately after Unexpected After Prom Bonding.
WARNING: This chapter deals with the discussion of past child molestation.
## ## ##
Later that evening, Artie and Kitty were dancing at the prom. Artie was still wearing his tux, which served as a reminder of the events earlier in the evening, and how under-dressed she was.
There was a time when she would never have dreamed of doing something so selfless as giving away her prom dress to someone else, let alone someone she didn’t even get along with most of the time; but she had realized that being popular meant nothing if you didn’t also have friends – real friends, not like the ones she had on the Cheerios and football team, who were only friends when it suited them or they got something from it.
I’m Proud to Announce That the Wildebrams Fic-A-Thon is Being Expanded!
The first month of the Fic-A-Thon has been going pretty well; if a bit slow, so we have decided to expand it into a Triathlon and have it run the remainder of the summer. We have had several new authors enter the fray and I’ve heard from others who have wanted to but for some reason haven’t managed to do so yet. I want to give you more time to contribute.
Those Three Words:
Kitty and Artie have another heart to heart conversation about their relationship. This scene takes place several episodes after “Do You Love Me”, during either 100 or New Directions.
Do You Love Me?
This scene takes place in the Spring of 2013, during Frenemies after the performance of Breakaway.
